We originally tried the lifestyle for ourselves with an '85 Class C. We'd been introduced to the RV world by family back in the UK when we were growing up.

That '85 was such a POS we almost gave up. It had a Ford 460 with enough smog gear to keep an aircraft carrier clean! It averaged 6 mpg at sea level and 4.5 in the mountains. We can't go very far around here without climbing some mountain pass or other.

We managed to sell it when gas was still less than $2, then sat for a few years before we found our current MH. The seller was the original owner and lived just 30 miles away. He'd advertised in the local paper before considering further afield.

At 8 years old, it only had 12,000 miles on the odometer and 48 hours on the generator. In three seasons we've added about 4500 miles, but only another 12 hours on the generator - mainly the "monthly exercises".

Unfortunately, it looks like we'll have to sell at the start of next season. On a limited retiree income, 8mpg + CG fees + insurance are enough that it doesn't seem do-able any more.

If anyone is interested in a Georgetown 325, F53 chassis with V-10 and in excellent shape, send us a PM. We're located in the very top LH corner of the mainland US, just 50 crow-fly miles from the Canadian border. We'd love to sell it to someone who's into the lifestyle enough to be a member here.

Welcome we just purchased ours last week. Same here didn't know we wanted one. Thought I was going to get a small class C to pull my off road toys. Then management got involved and she decided that we needed a class A. :-) it was all good but it's just like when we sold our last home and bought the one were in now I thought we were down sizing management told me I was misinformed. LOL
